Angkor Wat Siem Reap

RVM | Travel Tips | Uncategorized

It was an early morning start from River Village Manor Guesthouse in Siem Reap, It was a little previous 4:30 AM and I was one of the very first individuals there. It was still nearly pitch black so I had to utilize my cellular phone's LCD show to light the way. Without it, I probably would have tripped and fallen under the moat.

I set up my tripod at the edge of the lake and waited for the sun to rise from behind those iconic 5 spires. At that ungodly hour, I believed I 'd be among the few people insane enough to press myself from bed simply to take a photo. I was wrong.

Within an hour, a little army of amateur professional photographers had actually camped out all along the lake's edge. There should have been several hundreds of us forming 4-5 rows of travelers hoping for that iconic daybreak shot. Such is the magic and allure of Angkor Wat.

A World Heritage site and the World's Largest Religious Monument, it's one of the few locations that you absolutely must see a minimum of once in your life. Here's a first-timer's travel guide that I hope can help you plan that journey.


Cambodia has two seasons-- dry and damp. The wet season is from May to October while the dry season is from November to April.

Flash flooding is a frequent occurence, making travel challenging nevertheless Siem Reap no longer floods and you can get some excellent deals. November to February is the most popular time to go due to the fact that it's the coolest and driest time of the year. We went in December and the crowds at times were unbearable.

For a good balance of weather and number of tourists, June-August is said to be the most perfect. The rain keeps things cooler and less dusty, the landscape is more green, the temple moats are filled, and there are less tourists. Rainy season isn't in full swing yet, with the rain can be found in it appears at an arranged time daily-- early in the afternoon and again at night.


Travelers will be showing up at Siem Reap International Airport (REP). We paid USD 7 each way however it'll most likely be more expensive if you worked with one on the area.

For How Long TO STAY

Siem Reap is all about the Angkor temples. The 3-day Angkor pass need to be enough if you're not out to see every single temple. I 'd state 4-5 nights is enough.


Cambodia is economical, even by Southeast Asian standards. It's one of the most inexpensive countries we've gone to. You can delight in a meal at a fancy dining establishment for $10. Ice cold draft beer can be had for simply 50c a mug.

You can basically live like a king there with a budget of $100 per day, less if you share a room with another tourist. This consists of lodgings, food and beverages, some shopping, transportation, and your Angkor pass. It's so affordable that budget tourists can most likely succeed with as little as $50 each day.

Easily, USD is the de facto currency in Cambodia. It's accepted everywhere. The only time you'll ever see Cambodian Riel is when it's offered to you as small change from USD deals.

Why not take a tuktuk to Banteay Srei Temple after Breakfast? Banteay Srei is a Temple sometimes missed by tourists on a short stay in Siem Reap and is a little more than 24Km north of River Village Manor. I would suggests starting the day with one of our Full Breakfast setting you up for the day before heading out with one of our Tuktuk drivers.
